But that was back when sport was sport and you did anything and everything in and out side the rules to win games.
Now when a player is hurt, the team has to list them as hurt. They can be as vague as they want about the severity of the injury or where it is actually located, but teams HAVE to report injuries.
THAT I am not a big fan of.
I don't see that as sport. It's targeting injuries to potentially risk someone's livelihood which is much more important than any trophy. Sport is being at your best and competing with others at theirs to see who's better. Not taking shallow victories because you cracked an injured area with a stick or gouged at someone in a pile up.
